Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in Ventura

One of the country’s finest chamber orchestras, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) will be performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos No. 2-5, led by Margaret Batjer.

Among the greatest achievements of the Baroque era, Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos employ varied instrumentation that highlights the virtuosity of each musician. How did these familiar 300-year-old tunes become favorites in the classical music canon? Los Angeles Times writer Mark Swed puts it best, “The concertos don’t have anything to do with anything, other than being a demonstration of Bach’s amazing ingenuity and his inordinate ability to delight.”
